Horn location

Have any easier ways been found yet. Original Horn on our 2003 ( 53 ) 1.4 SE Petrol has gone very quiet and the MOT Test is coming up. It’s done this before after lack of use but usually always came right again after a couple of Toots. Not today but it has had even less use than ever since mid March !

Easier, yes though not necessarily elegant. The feed and earth for the horn exit the (UK) o/s headlight loom just before the headlight. It is possible to cut them to fit a new horn in a space of your choosing though you'll probably have to extend the wires.

Did it that way this morning. Took Headlamp and Fog Lamp out. Could not see or even feel where the Horn was. Found the 2 Wires exiting the Loom behind the Headlamp. Cut them and reconnected using Lucas Brass Bullet Connectors and extended Wires to New Hella Horn. There’s a threaded hole in just the right place on the Inner Wing behind the Headlamp.

I decided to relocate the standard Audi horn into the wing using one of the Webasto / brake fluid reservoir location nuts as I do not have a Webasto. The loom has not been altered just fished out using the fog light method and reconnected to the horn..

This is the original location, fitted to the right hand end of the upper crash beam.

I only took the right fog light out and felt around to locate the cable and followed it onto the horn

I managed to add a second Bosch Fanfare (Hi frequency) close to the original without dismantling anything. Spliced into the existing lines to the horn in parallel, works great and sound much more purposefu!

You can see the Threaded Hole I used to Bolt my Horn to. Centre Left. The Cable Tie is pointing at it.

Picture also shows where my auxiliary (second) earth lead has been bolted to the chassis side of the engine mount and loops behind the MAF sensor onto the engine block.

Which are the Best Horns / best place to buy them from ? Twin Horns High & Low Tone ?
I've used these(£16) and prefer the tone to the Bosch below, it's fairly aggressive...
and these(which were £15 though currently unavailable - part number search may bear fruit)...
